I've always liked Samsung. We have a 42' HD LCD in our living room and I have no complaints so far. Samsung is amoung the top in display

other good companies are NEC (been around since the beginning, literally)
and Sony

I just got a Samsung 206BW which I really like... except that there is some light bleed-through at the top and bottom when viewing dark content. The color and speed are very good though.

I have an LG and a Viewsonic, both 20" widescreen. No complaints about either.

Just remember if u want decent fps with a gts, a rez of 16x12 WILL cause issues.
I managed to find a samsung 20" with 14x10, which is about the most my sys will handle.

Would you suggest the 640 MB graphics card then?

I just a few days ago got the LG L206WTY 20"...really like it so far.

Wow.. If thats the highest rez your system can handle you may have a problem. Im still using an x850xt with e6600 at 1920*1200. Not the smartest combo, but it gets the job done just fine.

i have a acer 22" x221w paired with a 8800gts 320mb and i love the set up. i play all my games at native resolution of 1680x1050. i play bf2 at max everything except aa witch is at 4x and my fps dont drop below 110 and avarages around 180s. i do have my sstem overclocked like crazy but im happy with it. i recommend the acer x221w because its cheap and its also 8 bit panel.

Samsung Syncmaster 226bw

Whatever A, B or C versions of this monitor you find will be enough for all your gaming needs.

I am using a C panel and it is amazing, forget about those crazy reviews around the net....

The LG has some great monitors and I hear they have a better sharper picture than the Samsungs.

L206WTY-BF 20 inch $244.49
L226WTY-BF 22 inch $355.99

Zipzoomfly has both with free shipping:
